Strawberry Oatmeal Pancakes - SRC

 What does the second Monday of the month mean in the blogging world?  It's the day the members of Secret Recipe Club's group B reveal their assigned blogger.   This month, I was introduced to Jen of Jen's Journey.  Jen's been blogging since 2007, WOW!  She's a mom of two teenagers and is married to her high school sweetheart.  Be sure to take a minute and check out the variety of recipes on her blog.

I don't post breakfast recipes very often.  Jen's recipe for Strawberry Oatmeal Pancakes caught my eye and made for a delicious Sunday morning breakfast.  I decided to use instant banana bread oatmeal.  This gave the already yummy pancakes a hint of banana.  Who doesn't love strawberries and bananas. 

Strawberry Oatmeal Pancakes
 Recipe Courtesy of Jen's Journey
  • 1⅓ cups all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup whole wheat flour
  • ¼ cup old-fashioned oats (I used instant banana bread oatmeal)
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups nonfat buttermilk
  • 3 tablespoons butter, melted and cooled
  • ¼ cup honey, divided  (I used agave)
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • 1 cup of strawberries sliced in half 
  1. Whisk together all-purpose flour, whole wheat flour, oats, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a large bowl.
  2. In another bowl, whisk together buttermilk, melted butter, 2 tablespoons honey and egg in a medium bowl.
  3. Add buttermilk mixture to flour mixture, stirring just until moistened.
  4. Heat a nonstick griddle or large nonstick skillet coated with cooking spray over medium heat. Pour about ¼ cup batter for each pancake onto hot skillet; sprinkle with 4 to 6 strawberry halves.
  5. Cook 3 minutes or until tops are covered with bubbles; turn and cook other side. Repeat with remaining batter and berries.
  6. Top with any remaining berries, and drizzle with remaining 2 tablespoons honey.
